I've re-embraced meal planning and put together a meal plan I'm loving for this week. So far, I've cooked two great dinners that the family has enjoyed.
In making food choices, I have my good days and I have a few bad days here and there, but I'm mostly doing well:
Folic acid. In addition to what I get from my prenatal vitamins, I've discovered that escarole is a good source of folic acid and fiber and high in vitamin A and K. It's good in salads and in soups... and I've been on a bit of soup kick, so I've been looking for ways to eat escarole.
Soups. I'm trying to eat more soup, particularly non-fattening soup. If i can get lots of veggies in there, even better.
Fruits. I'm eating more fruit now, mostly because I'm trying to set a good example for my three year old. I always put a serving of fruit in his lunchbox, and then I have some kind of fruit out on the table at dinner time. Having the fruit out often means my husband will nibble at it...and my son then follows suit. I'll have the fruit for dessert.
So here's what I ate on Tuesday...if you want to see what others are eating, I recommend you check out the WIAW (What I Ate Wednesday) party over at Peas and Crayons.
Breakfast - mushroom & spinach omelette with spiced coffee. Lunch - miso soup (no photo), chicken spring roll, masaman beef curry with brown rice. Afternoon snack - apples & almond butter (no photo). Dinner - escarole, apple, hazelnut salad and escarole and meatball soup.
Now that's it fall, are you making any changes to your eating habits? Any new foods that you're trying?
